INTRODUCTION. 



The study of the positive effects of drugs upon the healthy human organism 
is novf universally acknowledged to be the duty of every student of medicine. 
To su pply a complete and accurate record of these effects (pathological anat- 
omy excepted), is the aim of this work. These symptoms are recorded as 
facts, which, while the interpretation of their physiological action is as sure to 
change as physiology is to advance, will ever remain the same, and be re-read 
and re-interpreted with increasing clearness and satisfaction. 

Pemparation. — The sources from which this compilation has been made 
are three. 

First. Experiments made upon healthy individuals for the purpose of noting 
the effects of the drug. 

Second. Effects observed after poisonous doses (accidentally or maliciously 
administered). 

Third. Symptoms (cautiously admitted) observed in the sick after the ad- 
ministration of the drug. 

To these must be added a vekt few symptoms which have never been 
observed as effects of drug-action, but which have been so repeatedly verified 
clinically, that they clearly indicate the remedy ; these are designated by a 
small cipher after the symptom. 

A large amount of literature has been searched that the work might be com- 
plete and reliable. Original sources have been obtained and transcribed or 
translated. The authorities quoted by Hahnemann (whose original publica- 
tions he was, in many instances, unable to obtain), have been referred to by 
Dr. Hughes, of England, the circumstances under which the effects were 
noticed, furnished us, and, when necessary, corrections made. The follow- 
ing sample will serve to illustrate the value and accuracy of Dr. Hughes's 
work :

INTRODUCTION. vii 



NOTE BY DR. HUGHES. 



" Dr. Alien has wished me to state the nature of my contribution to his opus 
magnum. 

" It has regard solely to the pathogenesies of Hahnemann. These are derived 
from two sources : tlin first, observations made by himself and his disciples ; 
the second, cases of poisoning and overdosing recorded in medical literature. 
The two elements are present in the several pathogenesies in varying propor- 
tions, as may be seen from the lists given iu the Monthh/ Hoinceopathic Review, 
for November, 1873, and the British Journal of Ilomosoputli;/ for October, 1873. 

"There are thus, in Hahnemann's contributions to the Materia Medica, a 
large number of quotations. Now, in editing any work so characterized, you 
will add greatly to its value if the quotations are verified by reference to the 
originals. Errors will creep in, and they are much more likely to occur to the 
citer, full of his other thoughts, than to a corrector, whose one purpose is to 
see that no mistake is allowed to stand. Hahnemann's quotations, like those 
of any other author, need verification, and experience has amply proved the 
usefulness of the task. 

" But there is something more. It has often been lamented that Hahne- 
mann has given us so little information as to the circumstances under which 
his symptoms were observed. In the case of himself and hjs fellow-provers, we 
must wait for this, till lif ever they are) their day-books arc published. But 
as regards the observations he has cited from authors, the information we 
desire is (in the main) accessible to us. It only needs a search in the great 
libraries which aim at including all literature to find the journals, transac- 
tions, and treatises, extant in Hahnemann's day, and from which he quoted. 
The result is illumination. A flood of light is cast upon the separate symp- 
toms he has furnished : we learn their subjects, the dose and preparation of 
the drug, the order pursued by the phenomena, and their termination. Many 
misconceptions which we are liable to form of them, standing alone, are re- 
moved ; and the whole series becomes intelligible and available for practice. 

' ' Yet once again. The investigations of this kind which have been hitherto 
carried out, have disclosed a strange laxity on Hahnemann's part, as regards 
the materials he has used. Symptoms of the most questionable kind, con- 
demned by his own canons, and such as no one now would admit into a patho- 
genesis or use in practice, find frequent place in the Materia Medica Pura 
and the Chronic Diseases. This is the unanimous judgment of all, of Eoth, 
Langheinz, Frank, Shipman, Beil, Sorge, Wurmb, AVatzke, who have exam- 
ined any part of the subject. It has been suggested in explanation, that 
Hahnemann left this part of his work to others, and must not be blamed for 
their errors ; and further, that he gave these symptoms as corroborative only. 
But, however this may be, there they stand ; undistinguished in most collec- 
tions (as in Jahr and Hempel), from those which surround them, undistin- 
guished always among themselves. They need imperatively the fullest inves- 
tigation, that their real character may be exposed, and they be either dropped 
or stigmatized as dubious. 

"The facts thus stated had for some time been before my mind, when I 
undertook to arrange Belladonna for the Hahnemann Materia Medica. It was 



viii INTRODUCTION. 

ray duty to cunsult the originals of tlie 1 440 symptoms, cited by Hahnemann, in 
his pathogenesis of this drug ; and the results I arrived at (as detailed in the 
British Journal of Homoso2)athij for 1873) both quickened my sense of the need 
of such examinations, and showed me their feasibility for the English student. 
In the Monthly Homceopathic Bccieic for November, 187:3, I stated the matter 
at length, illustrating it by the instance of Aconite ; and urged the carrying 
out of the investigation for all Hahnemann's medicines No response came, 
and no public body took up the undertaking. My attention was then drawn 
to Dr. Allen's projected Encyclopedia, and it seemed to me a grievous thing 
tbiit Hahnemann's pa thogenesies should once more go forth to the world with 
their citations unverified, unillumined, unreviscd. I wrote to Dr. Allen, offer- 
ing to do this work for him. He closed with me at once, and liberally pro- 
vided tiie necessary means, and I have been engaged in the investigation ever 
since. 

" Its results may hereafter appear in some separate and more detailed form. 
At present, they are incorporated into the Materia Medica as presented in 
these pages. In the heading, instead of a bare list of names of authors from 
whom Hahnemann has quoted, there is affixed to each a brief statement of. 
the nature of his observations, sufficient to show generally the value of the 
symptoms derived from this source. Next, to each symptom that requires it 
a note is appended, throwing light upon its causation and connections. Last, 
all doubtful symptoms are bracketed squarely, to distinguish them from those 
which Hahnemann himself has bracketed, with like intent.""' The reason for 
such stigma is either stated in a note, or is obvious from the account given in 
the heading of the nature of the author's observations. I could myself have 
wished, in many instances, to expunge rather than to bracket ; but, in rever- 
ence for the master, Dr. Allen desires to omit nothing which he has given us, 
and it is left to the judgment of the reader to estimate all according to the' in- 
formation supplied. My notes occupy a separate division of the page, to keep 
them distinct from those whicii Hahnemann has appended to his s3'mptoms 

■'lu tills Encyclopedia of Materia Medica, accordingly, the student may 
feel confidence that no cited symptom of Hahnemann's (save those of authors 
whose works I have been unable to consult) stands unverified, and that none 
is without the fullest light which can be cast upon its nature and probable 
value." 

The existence of typographical and other errors in the original text of some 
provings, has been brought to the notice of the editor, by Dr. C. Hering, of 
Philadelphia. The value of these notes will be recognized by the following 
samples.

and to footnotes. In succeeding volumes, two kinds of brackets will be used as 
here suggested.

head of ffntr. mur. ; one is not to be found in Halmcmann (" on awaking," etc.) ; 
and nine with anxiety, not to be found in Cyclopedia. 

Chroni.sche Krankheiten Vierto Theile. Nitrum, page 475, symptom 252, instead 
o{ " Nerveuffegend" read Nierengegend ! copied by Trinks in his Handbucli ; also by 
Jahr and some translators. 

SabadilUi, Archiv 4, 3, page 122-156 ; full of errors. Stapf Beitrage, 1836, every 
one repeated ; have gone in all the Repertories. The worst are, page 126, instead 
of " Wein-lr itiken read Warin-irinken," etc. 

Authorities are given at the beginning of each proving, and each symp- 
tom is followed by a small number referring to this list of autliorities, so that 
any symptom may be readily traced, and reliance placed upon it according to 
its authority, the dose which produced it, or the time when it occurred, the 
time (when noted by the provers) being given in brackets after the symptom. 

Tkanslatioits have been made witli special care to preserve tlie accurate 
meaning of the original. When existing translations have been found accu- 
rate, their phraseology has been retained, in order to make as little change as 
possible in existing Repertories or habitual use of symptoms. 

For several years the editor has kept, added to, and elaborated a small 
manuscript vocabulary, which includes the most obscure terms used in de- 
scribing symptoms, the translation of which has been adopted after numerous 
comparisons and conferences with German scholars. Much aid has been ob- 
tained from a table of terms published in the Vierteljahrschrift, especially in 
the matter of provincialisms. A few extracts will illustrate this part of the 
work. 

Abqesohlagenheit. Mental dejection; physical prostration or weariness.' (Com- 
pare Mattigkeit.) 

Anqeoriffkniieit. Indisposed ; sick. (Compare Abspannung.) 

Daemisch (see Eiiigenommeti). Confused. (Compare BenebUmg, Benommenheit, 
Befangenhcit, and Wiistheit ) 

Frost. Chill. (More severe than Kalte, coldness; a more subjective or internal 
sensation.) 

Matt. A sensation of weakness; weariness (tired, like Miide), but not such real 
loss of strength as Schwnch. 

ScHLUXD. The whole internal throat ; ScUund-kopf, -phsLryn-z. 

By such means the editor has endeavored to make the translations as accu- 
rate and uniform as possible, and hopes that very few errors will exist in this 
part of the work. The translations from the French have mostly been made 
by Dk. G. L. Fkeejiax. a good French scholar and conscientious translator. 

Aeeangemeiit. — The drugs have been arranged alphahetically, which ar- 
rangement has been strictly followed, separating even Atropine and Bella- 



X INTRODUCTION. 

donua. The only scientific or satisfactory grouping of drugs possible must 
be in accordance with tlieir generic effects on the liuman body. Many of our 
drugs are too imperfectly known, and, indeed, our bodies themselves are too 
imperfectly known, to render such a classification possible at this time. Theo- 
retical grouping of drugs must be left to text-books, or treatises on the Materia 
Medica ; it is out of place in a work of this character. 

Symptoms are arranged in accordance with the anatomical plan. Sub- 
iTrouping has been made in accordance with the following general principles 
in any part : 

First. General symptoms not localized definitely. 

Second. Localized symptoms. 

Attention has been paid to objective and subjective symptoms, and when pos- 
sible the axqjearance of a part (objective) is first given, and afterward sensa- 
tions (subjective). Symptoms denoting increased action or activity are given 
rirst ; those denoting depression and loss of action or function follow. 

The following scheme has been prepared and followed as strictly as possible : 

I. MIND.

class is most important. Symptoms in italics, without stars, have been re- 
peatedly observed by provers, but not yet verified on the sick. Most generous 
and efficient help in this portion of the work has been rendered by two of our 
most distinguished therapeutists, De. Carroll Dunham and Dr. Ad. Lippb. 
Dr. Dunham has looked over nearly all the manuscript when ready for the 
press, and put in his stars and italics ; in Argentum nitricum, for example, he 
starred symptoms 0, 31, 58, 61, 67, 73, 76, 82, 89, 104, 139, 141, 148, 275, 278,

Lippe has taken the trouble to send the editor the numbers of the symptoms 
in liis Text-book which he has verified ; has also made additional observa- 
tions. The other verifications have been inserted by the editor, after consult- 
ing nearly the whole of the homceopathic literature. Doubtless numerous

symptoms now undistinguished deserve stars. The editor will be duly thank- 
ful for any suggestions in the matter. 

It is obviously beyond the power of any one man to do, in a limited time, 
all the clerical and other labor which this work has required. Db. George L. 
Fkeeman has been constantly employed upon it, for nearly two years preced- 
ing the issue of the first volume ; he has translated all, or nearly all, the French 
provings. has visited libraries for the purpose of copying provings and poison 
cases, has arranged the symptoms in accordance with the scheme, and has 
mads up the Conditions. My partner, Dii. St. Clair Smith, has furnished 
numerous verifications for the work, and has very efficiently assisted its pro- 
gress through the press. To both these gentlemen are due our most grateful 
acknowledgments. To Dr. H. M. Smith we are especially indebted, for the 
use of his most valuable English library, complete in its files of early and 
recent Homoeopathic literature. 

The work is now offered to the profession with the hope that, b}' its accuracy 
and completeness, it will advance the healing art, and be the means of more 
effectually relieving suffering.

drowsy, at the same time very restless ; great anxiety. In two hours drow 
siness had become insensibility, with constant mattering delirium ; did not

whole was a most complete picture of torpor,^". — The chill was always pre-

remedy in malignant puerperal fever,'. — Affects the organism in the follow- 
ing order: throat, lungs, eyes, head,'. — -(In prover M., this order of evolu- 
tion is exactly reversed. J.) — After discontinuing the drug the head, throat,

3Iind. — He weeps and sobs with distorted face, or he froths with rage, 
and fills the house with curses and execrations. — Frenzy, accompanied by 
the most violent convulsions (convulsive intoxication). — Drunkenness, with 
various manias. — Mania, with excessive irritability, excited by slightest 
causes. — Mania, with disposition to commit murder or incendiarism. —

He is ashamed of his intoxication, and the more he tries to conceal it, the 
more he betrays it. — Talkativeness, and abeyance of usual caution. — Rapid 
and incoherent talk. — Rum, and some other spirits, made us very talkative 
and hilarious in about ten minutes ; so much so that my friend was alto- 
gether a king ; but as minutes flew away, so did our joyousness, and little 
by little we lessened our garrulity and became silent, almost morose, and 
extremely miserable. Never were the extremes of happiness and misery 
brought so vividly before us, or seemed to be in such close proximity, as on 
these occasions. Every mental perception was darkened, and the dreami- 
ness, which is not an unpleasant feature of it, is a condition in which nei- 
ther thought nor imagination acquires power. — Transported into a garden 
of pleasure, he only sees cheerful and agreeable objects, but the predomi- 
nating feeling is love and desire. — Infatuated, he discovers beauties in his 
mistress that he had before overlooked, and he uses all the images of poesy 
to warm his feelings and heighten his passion. The delirium of love breaks 
out first. — He (an octogenarian) became so amorous that he addressed the

grows unmanageable ; demands to go peremptorily to attend to his busi- 
ness. — Sighing, anxiety, and apprehension of evil. — [60.] Mental inqui- 
etude, making it impossible for him to settle to any ordinary occupation,

ders ; and at length, notwithstanding the existence of a suitable degree of 
atmospheric temperature, it became distressing, and led often to shivering. 
This was sometimes so marked, and occurred so suddenly, that it gave rise 
to a shock. It did not correspond to the temperature of the skin, but was 
usually coexistent with the cessation of the iucrease of the heart's action. — 
[470.] Fever (often through the entire course of the disease — delirium tre- 
mens — none). — Evening exacerbations. — Great inclination to sweat. —

from side to side in bed entirely prevents sleep (chronic). — What sleep he 
has had has been of an unrefreshing kind, and a complete condition of 
nervous prostration naturally results, from which he can only be rallied by 
food or drink (chronic). — Fully developed insomnia ; the patient tosses from 
side to side during nearly the whole night, getting only broken snatches of 
sleep, and these almost always attended with disturbing, and often with 
frightful dreams (chronic). — Sleep restless, interrupted by dreams, which 
the patient in the beginning still recognizes as such, but later takes them 
for real when he awakes ; finally, entire sleeplessness, during which he often 
insists on having slept. — Terrible dreams. — His dreams are so vivid that 
he cannot be persuaded on awaking that they are not realities. — [490.]

sciousness of what has happened. — After sleeping ofi"his intoxication, he is

activity, yawns continually, and impatiently awaits the hour for the next 
orgy.

afternoon,". — [130.] About .3^ and 4 o'clock, p.m., sitting in church, she 
was seized with a sharp, steady pain in the stomach, accompanied by the 
most deathlike faintness she ever recollected to have felt, with extreme 



196 ALUMEN. 

sickness and immediate loss of strength. A cold sweat covered her; she 
thinks she must have been deathly pale, for she felt as though the blood 
(which had at first been driven to the head by the suddenness and severity 
of the pain), were leaving it and the extremities altogether; they were 
quite cuid ; her sight grew dim, and she became so faint that she expected 
every moment to fall from her seat. — The pain in the stomach felt as 
though it would draw her double. Having no friend near her she feared 
to make the attempt to leave the pew, lest she should not have strength to 
reach the door unaided, much less her home. The attack lasted, she 
thinks, about half an hour, after which the violence of the pain gradually 
abated, the faintness passed off, the chilliness gave place to heat, and the 
blood rushed to her head, with such a force, that she could hardly hold it 
up, or keep her eyes open, though quite conscious of the services going on 
about her. After services she was able to walk slowly home, though very 
weak, feeling very much as if she had been ill for a month. She felt the 
weakness especially in her back, although she had no pain there, but during 
the rest of the evening, whenever drawing a long breath, it appeared to 
come from a spot on each side of the spine, about the middle of the back, 
on a line with the inferior angles of the scapulae (fifth day). The effects 
passed off with a night's rest, and she had no further return of the symp- 
toms (nor has she had such an attack since, two years after),'. — At 3 p.m., 
while sitting, a sudden jerking pain from the stomach up into the swallow, 
at the same time a twitching of the lower lip, and weak feeling in the 
pit of the stomach ; he has to rise and walk about when all the symptoms 
vanish,' b. — At 8 p.m., when walking in the open air, a severe pain to the 
left of the scrobiculuui, somewhat relieved by standing still and pressing

more perceptible with every step,' b. — Pressing pain in the pit of the
